Good music but...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sting (Audio CD)
I bought this as I wanted a recording of 'Solace', but as it turns out I already own the famous Joshua Rifkin recording, but had forgotten that! The recordings here are OK, but my reason for marking the CD down a bit is that these are not the original soundtrack recordings.
I believe Scott Joplin's music is now in the public domain, which means anybody can record it. Whoever recorded this, and its nobody I've ever heard of, has just stuck 'The Sting' on the album cover. Also there is no credit for Marvin Hamlish on this CD, and he was responsible for the original soundtrack.
So the music is fine, though not as outstanding as the other reviews might lead you to believe, but it is not the soundtrack from the film, which is what I thought I was buying. The proper soundtrack album is available, and if I'd used my eyes I'd have bought that. I'd recommend that, or the Joshua Rifkin recordings over this recording.
